ugh, I am still at the office, I gotta get home quick to catch some of this action.
 
I mean the basketball game, not creepy mascots.

Uuh, so far you're not missing anything. But big Almeda could be a fan favorite. Dang is he big.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

My 12 year old brother cracks me up with Almeda. He has no mercy when it comes to that big guy. I must admit he sticks out a bit when he's on the floor lol

Purdue has no business being 15-16. They have pretty good talent. For no particular reason, I blame it on DJ Byrd. He's shooting 0.377 this year, which makes me think that he's been chillin' around campus - not to cast aspersions, or anything. It just makes no sense to me that this Purdue squad has to scrap with a team like Nebraska.

Well, so far this half they've (PU) stopped scrapping.

Yes, they look like they've packed it in for the season. That kinda explains why they're 15-16.

Spoke too soon. Purdue decided to play a little. 

CALPOPPY's picture

Yeah, they did. But man was that an ugly game. That would've probably seemed a lot more exciting on tv. In person, the arena was dead.

Lets go Nebraska! Finish this off and give it your all so that your exhausted tomorrow when you play us

And tire Hightower out, too, so he can't work the Ohio State game tomorrow.

Nice call, Hightower! You blind fool.

Yeah, that was stupid. He waited until they were getting ready to throw in the ball before making a call the other way. Damn, what a showman.

Wow, upset brewing!

Not so fast my friend!

Some matchups are impervious to jinxes or otherwise insulting the bball gods. I can safely say that the Buckeyes will coast through Nebraska tomorrow night and will move on to Saturday. Meanwhile, MSU will have to deal with a pesky Iowa team.

Welp you jinexed us... Haha but honestly I prefer playing Nebraska over Purdue

Coach miles tweeted at halftime, what the hell lol

I would much rather play Nebraska considering how well Purdue was playing of late.
